Having a box with full access is definitely a plus.  I have a 9406-270 in my
living room that I found on eBay for a fairly descent price.  It's been
encountering some memory errors for a while now, but seems to be hanging in
there.  I might have to find some replacement memory, or a replacement box,
one of these days myself.  There was a post on the Midrange-L list last
month from someone with a couple of "old 525 systems" that he's looking to
part with:


I contacted him recently and as of a few days ago they were still available.
I'd have grabbed one of them if I had the funds to spare at the moment.
